American artist, William Hudson Temples, grew up drawing pictures and cartoons. His early inspirations were Maurice Sendak, Charles Schultz, and Shel Silverstein. In 1987, he began formal art training at the Savannah College of Art and Design and in 1991 was awarded a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree with a specialization in illustration. Temples also holds a Master’s Degree in Health Science from the University of North Carolina. Temples has worked as a graphic designer, illustrator, and cartoonist. His comic strip, Dumbbells, was published across North America in the Canadian Magazine, Razor. Currently, Temples is occupied in the field of education and fine art. He divides his time between North and South America, and much of his artwork reflects the cultural influences of his wife’s native country, Argentina. With collectors in Latin America, Europe, and Asia, Temples’ visual art has attracted a global audience.
